Beverly Hills Prosthodontics – Prosthetic Dentistry

Missing Teeth? With over 2 decades of experience, extensive training, and cutting edge technology, Dr. Frank Vidjak has been recognized as the premier provider of Prosthodontics in Beverly Hills.

By specializing in prosthetic dentistry and taking advantage of our own in-house lab, we are able to provide more effective, long lasting aesthetic restoration options for the replacement of teeth.

The term “prostho” means replacement and prosthetic while “dontist” means dealing with teeth.

Prosthodontists are considered and recognized as THE experts for treatments in replacing anything in your mouth, such as replacing single or multiple teeth, or even all teeth and gums.

There are dentists who perform some or all of these treatments.  However Prosthodontists are the specialists dedicated to this type of care as they have trained for three additional years after completing dental school, including advanced-level courses, clinical and laboratory experience, patient care and research.  As such prosthodontists are most often referred to as the “quarterback” of a dental treatment plan.  They will regularly lead teams of specialists, general dentists, and other health professionals to develop solutions for your dental needs.

This rigorous training and experience provide prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile and the preservation of a healthy mouth.

Prosthodontists also understand patients’ other unique needs such as:

  • Maxillofacial prosthetic procedures like oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care
  • Cleft palate and other congenital conditions that affect the mouth.
